Tottenham in talks with Barcelona winger over summer move – report

Cristian Tello's agent is set for talks with Tottenham Hotspur, according to reports in the Italian media

Cristian Tello’s agent has flown to London for talks with Tottenham Hotspur over a potential summer transfer, according to reports in the Italian media.

Calcio Mercato are claiming that Tello’s representative Joseph Maria Orotbig is en route to the English capital to discuss a potential summer switch to White Hart Lane.

According to the Italian media outlet, Serie A side Fiorentina have failed to wrap up a deal to sign Tello despite agreeing a £6m (€7m) deal with his current club Barcelona.

The 24-year-old has struggled to tie down a regular place in Luis Enrique’s side over the past number of years and has been sent on loan to their European rivals in order to secure first-team football.

Tello played the first half of the 2015/16 campaign with Fiorentina before he moved to Portuguese side Porto in a temporary deal until the end of the season.

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino has been linked with a host of different players but the Lilywhites have thus far only signed Kenya international Victor Wanyama in a big-money deal from Premier League rivals Southampton.
